Canadian carriers are jumping on the bandwagon too. On February 14th you will be able to purchase a Galaxy Note on Telus, Bell, or Rogers. It will cost C$249.99 on a three year contact. The Canadian Galaxy Notes will run on LTE or at least the Bell and Telus versions according to Best Buy.
It looks like that leaked AT&T roadmap was nearly spot-on. AT&T has just come out and announced that they will be selling the Galaxy Note February 19th. They will also start accepting preorders as early as February 5th. Preorders will be processed on the 15th and shipped on the 17th. The actual device will cost $299.99 on contract.

This year Mobile World Congress will be held February 27 through March 1 and AndroidandMe is reporting that a new Galaxy Tab model will be announced there. The tablet that will be announced is the already rumored Galaxy Tab 11.6.
BGR reports that AT&T will start selling their variant of the Galaxy Note on February 18th. It will cost $299.99 with a two year contract. That is a little higher than I would have hoped but it is, after all, a small tablet.
The big difference with AT&T’s Galaxy Note is the ability to get blazing fast data speeds on their new 4G LTE network. There is also a small GHz upgrade on the CPU from 1.4 GHz to 1.5 GHz. The actual chipset inside is still up for debate. The original model has a Samsung built Exynos processor but it is rumored that the AT&T variant has a Qualcomm built Snapdragon processor. Either way this phone is fast and deserves to be in your daily driver.
Another XDA member has compiled a CyanogenMod 9 ROM. The big difference this time is working 3G on 3G Galaxy Tab 10.1s. There is a bug where the signal bars do not display any signal, but the 3G data should still work. Like the other KANG CyanogenMod 9 ROMs, the camera is broken. So Skype video calls definitely will not work on that ROM.
Again this is for 3G models of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (GT-P7500). If you decide to use this ROM make sure to make a backup in ClockworkMod before wiping and flashing.
No, this is not the Ice Cream Sandwich update we have been waiting for. Instead, it is a 70 MB update bringing a few new features. The first update is to the keyboard. Now there is a fifth row for numbers and an option to make the keyboard smaller for one handed typing. Next is some minor visual changes to the lockscreen. It should also be slightly easier to unlock after the update. Samsung also added a new widget to toggle the LED light. The last of the notable changes is an option to change the brightness of the screen while using the browser independently from the brightness of the screen normally.
Have you gotten the update yet?
